Miner’s Home

This photograph of a Miner’s Home was taken in the fall of 2017 near Gold Point, Nevada while attending a night photography workshop. This old mining town is very popular with photographers as there are many abandoned homes in the area that belonged to the mining community.

Gold Point was a very popular mining destination and a thriving community in the early 1900s. Today it sits mostly empty with only a few residents. The primary economic activity today is tourism. The accommodations were rustic but it was fun spending a couple of days in this historic town.

This image was taken with my Sony A7R II using my Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 Lens set on 16mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/5.6, shutter speed at 20 seconds, and the ISO set at 4000. I used a tripod for this photo. I lit the inside of the buildings with some fairy string lights. The outside of the buildings was lit by the moon. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
